using Python in NetBeans 6.7beta Release

The plugin-center for Netbeans 6.7beta does not contain the Python plugin.

I've installed the python plugin on the 6.7m3 platform.

So I copied the everything containing *ython* and the py-scripts. from $HOME/.netbeans/6.7m3 to $HOME/.netbeans/6.7beta

Look in
./modules
./modules/ext
./modules/ext
./config/nbPython
./config/Modules
./update_tracking
./jython-2.5
./pythonstubs
./*.py
for the pieces.

After this I removed everything under $HOME/.netbeans/6.7beta/var/cache
and the plugin worked in 6.7beta.

I hope this is everything to get Python working again, until the Plugin is
available for 6.7beta.
